# Discrete time aperiodic signals

 Page 1 / 1
This module describes discrete time aperiodic signals.

## Introduction

This module describes the type of signals acted on by the Discrete Time Fourier Transform.

## Relevant spaces

The Discrete Time Fourier Transform maps arbitrary discrete time signals in ${l}^{2}(\mathbb{Z})$ to finite-length, discrete-frequency signals in ${L}^{2}(\left[0 , 2\pi \right))$ .

## Periodic and aperiodic signals

When a function repeats itself exactly after some given period, or cycle, we say it's periodic . A periodic function can be mathematically defined as:

$f(n)=f(n+mN)\forall m\colon m\in \mathbb{Z}$
where $N> 0$ represents the fundamental period of the signal, which is the smallest positive value of N for the signal to repeat. Because of this, you may also see a signal referred to as an N-periodic signal.Any function that satisfies this equation is said to be periodic with period N. Periodic signals in discrete time repeats themselves in each cycle. However, only integers are allowed as time variable in discrete time. We denote signals in such case as f[n], n = ..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ... Here's an example of a discrete-time periodic signal with period N:

We can think of periodic functions (with period $N$ ) two different ways:

1. as functions on all of $\mathbb{R}$
2. or, we can cut out all of the redundancy, and think of them as functions on an interval $\left[0 , N\right]()$ (or, more generally, $\left[a , a+N\right]()$ ). If we know the signal is N-periodic then all the information of the signal is captured by the above interval.

An aperiodic DT function, however, $f(n)$ does not repeat for any $N\in \mathbb{R}$ ; i.e. there exists no $N$ such that this equation holds. This broader class of signals can only be acted upon by the DTFT.

Suppose we have such an aperiodic function $f(n)$ . We can construct a periodic extension of $f(n)$ called ${f}_{No}(n)$ , where $f(n)$ is repeated every ${N}_{0}$ seconds. If we take the limit as ${N}_{0}\to$ , we obtain a precise model of an aperiodic signal for which all rules that govern periodic signals can be applied, including Fourier Analysis (with an important modification). For more detail on this distinction, see the module on the Discete Time Fourier Transform .

## Conclusion

A discrete periodic signal is completely defined by its values in one period, such as the interval [0,N].Any aperiodic signal can be defined as an infinite sum of periodic functions, a useful definition that makes it possible to use Fourier Analysis on it by assuming all frequencies are present in the signal.

I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think

Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
